USGA Green Section Record, April 15, 2011
Repairing Divots - Are You Doing It The
Right Way?
by the Green Section USGA Staff
Q: There seems to be confusion among the
membership about how much divot mix
should be used to fill fairway divots. Is there
a proper amount? (Every Club USA)
A: The proper amount of divot mix (usually
sand or a mixture comprised primarily of sand) is surprisingly small because it should be
only the amount needed to replace the soil that was removed. Filling divot level higher than
the existing playing surface, i.e. turfgrass canopy, is overfilling. Not only is this a waste of
divot mix, but the extra sand will slow turfgrass recovery because seedlings and/or lateral
regenerative growth of surrounding vegetation will be scalped by mowers. This leads to the
second problem when divots are overfilled because sand particles dull and damage mower

“They have a fantastic community-based
green waste recycling, composting, and
resource reduction initiative,” says GEO’s
Spanish River HS Claim State
4A Tennis
An aggressive composting program
makes use of grass clippings and food
waste from the property and surrounding
community and the resulting nutrient-rich
compost is used to help fertilize fairways
and roughs, a measure that can help
reduce the use of manufactured fertilizers.
Junior Zack Gross, Laurel Pointe resident,
accounted for half of Spanish River’s points to bring
the Sharks a championship in the FHSAA boys
Class 4A tennis. It’s the Shark’s first state
championship since 1989. Zach won 3 points in the
Singles Division and 2 Points in the Doubles
Division. The team took a total of 10 points to win
the championships.
The clubhouse has stopped using
polystyrene cups, and the pro shops
specialize in products from companies
that monitor their supply chains for
and efficiency.

wish them all a happy
holiday if we missed you

are interested in any of these programs.
Believe it or not we have already begun
working on next season’s events.
We would like to introduce you to our new
Director of Retail. Billie DeCover joined our

Closing Day Events
The Broken Sound BSWWGA and the BSMGA
events were held on April 5 th and 6 th
respectively. The women’s event was held in
the morning and they played a color war format
with the red team being victorious. This event
was not just about winning it was about
spending the day with friends and competitors.
Even the Pros got involved by hitting shots for
the ladies on a few of the holes and the
festivities concluded with an awards luncheon.
The men’s event was held in the afternoon and
they played a scramble format with four flights.
The Pros also hit balls for them enhancing their
experience. This event ended with an elaborate
buffet dinner with drinks flowing. Our members
sure know how to celebrate. We look forward
to seeing all of you for next season’s opening
day events.

Old Course News
by John Skaf, Director of Golf - Old Course
With the winter months
behind us and summer
fast approaching, it’s
hard to believe yet
another South Florida
season is winding down.
The month of March was
filled with events for the
men, ladies and couples.
The Club Championship
was held the first two weekends in March.
Congratulations go out to all the flight winners
which included, Ron Murstein (Championship
Flight), Dr. Steven Rindley (1st Flight), Dr. Eliot
Slater (2 nd Flight), Stan Levine (3 rd Flight),
Bonnie Rappaport (Ladies Championship Flight)
and Janet Edelstein (Ladies First Flight).
The Old Course again was a proud host to the
annual A Charity Challenge event, held on March
11th. With a score of 67, the 1st place gross
winners of the first flight were Howard David,
Burt Bines, Ron Alexander & Gary Cohen. The
1st place net winners of the first flight had a score
of 52 and consisted of Michael Mendelsohn,
Peter Stein, Joel Horowitz & Robert Weinblatt.
With a score of 73, the second flight winning
gross team was Chipp & Vicki Adams along with
John & Judy Heller. The second flight winning
net team had a score of 52 and belonged to
Louis & Paula Glazier and Rick & Arlene Selik.
Don Pressman, Jerry Robbins, Ronald Curwin
& Sidney Cohen shot a gross score of 83 and
won the third flight. The net winning score of
52 won the third flight and was shot by Elisa
Grabois, Linda Shapiro, Gwen Kamikow and
Wendy Goldberg.
Both the Men’s and Women’s Member Guests
were held in March. The Men’s was on the 21st
and consisted of a full field. There were nine
flights in total with four place winners in each
flight. The overall total net point winners were
the team of Larry Schwartz & Larry Barenbaum.
All players were treated to a day that featured a
magician, displaying his amazing tricks and a
helicopter golf ball drop onto the 18th green. It’s
a great event that continues to receive well
deserved support from the membership.
Joe Hubbard, CGCS
Summer is here and
many of you are too.
Welcome to the time of
the year when the
Bermuda grass grows
through the night and day
to keep our crews mowing
nonstop. As we mow we
will try our best to stay on
the edging of the bunkers, cart paths, sprinkler
heads and keeping the ornamental beds as
weed free as we can. It is our busiest time of
the year agronomically so you throw in three
aerifications apiece, some 25 tournaments, a
few projects such as composting, rain storms
and the time of the year when the crew has to
schedule their vacations, we are HOPPING!
The Women’s Member Guest was held on the
24th and this year’s motif was that of Scottish
heritage. This “Classy Lassy” theme had the
golf professional staff in kilts, the golf course
with specially made Scottish flags and a
Clubhouse ensemble of Scottish attire. In the
“Murfield Flight”, the event featured 1st place
gross winners of Piero Martineau, Helene
Simard, Elen Gendreau & Chantal Dubois. First
place net winners of the flight were Margie
Muskat, Janice Silverman, Sandy Sher & Sally
Rousell. The “Carnoustie Flight” 1st place gross
winners were the team of Andrea Ratner, Alesia
Kleiner, Lauren Schor & Gale Lehner. The 1st
place net winners were Susan Schaevitz, Cheryl
Nowack, Soni Baltimore & Jeffrie Stern. The
“Royal Troon Flight” 1st place gross winners were
Tsipi Renbaum, Keri Applebaum, Phoebe
Davidson & Jean Colardo. The 1 st place net
winning team was Lindsey Friend, Joann
Celano, Meryl Cohen & Sherri Dorman. The
“Kingsbarns Flight” had a 1st place gross winning
team of Lynn Bines, Ronnie Shrinsky, Vicki
Adams & Carol Trow. The 1st place net winning
team was Susan Rudnick, Ellie Shpiz, Marsha
Small & Cammy Farber.

The annual Governor’s Cup was held on April
2nd & 3rd and featured a women’s division and
two full flights of men. Liz Nolan & Kathy Frank
won the women’s division with a two day total of
127.25. With a two day score of 125.47, Steve
Scheinman & Richard Myer won the men’s first
flight. Dr. Steve Rindley & Norm Kamikow won
the second flight finishing with a total of 127.25.
As we look ahead towards the summer season,
the golf course continues to be in great condition
and we ask you to continue to help keep it that
way by repairing your ball marks, filling divots
and raking bunkers. We look forward to continue
to serve you and invite everyone to come out
and enjoy The Old Course.
Dr. Steven Rindley
For those members leaving to go back north for
the summer, we would like to thank you for your
participation this year and hope you have a
fantastic summer, full of birdies, long drives and
great shots.
Should there be anything we can do to enhance
your Old Course experience, please don’t
hesitate to let us know.
CLUB COURSE: We will undertake taking some
sand off the bunker faces around the green side
traps and more sand, maybe an inch, out of the
fairway bunkers to give a firmer lie for playability.
This does not guarantee that with a soft shot
with spin you will not plug but the percentages
will decrease.
Dr. Eliot Slater
Composting of several key fairways that have
heavy sand and/or rock base will get at least
one full application.
OLD COURSE: We have compiled a list of tee
tops in need of leveling, addition of good mix in
the surface and tees in need of total sod
replacement or expansion. This is all based on
finances and will be discussed very shortly. We
are adding a few trees we have acquired from
the Main Club House and will continue to add a
few here and there as they become available.

range, and have absolute faith in all our
decisions. When it does happen, it is a rare
opportunity to create true magic, to create without
boundaries. A successful event is one where the
guests recognize the reflection of the host in the
atmosphere. Any planner must recognize that
before embarking on the journey.
Details, Details and even
more Details. That’s what
true Catering is all about. Details are of the
utmost importance in the process of planning
a milestone event. Attention to details is what
puts clients at ease, and the ultimate peace of
mind is knowing that all the details have been
attended to well before the event even begins.
It is so incredibly invigorating and rewarding to
see people’s reactions (usually jaws drop) when
entering a world that you created. It makes all
the hard work worth doing. We always know that
we have done well, when it is not only the faces
of our members that are lit up with surprise and
awe, but also we excite our staff and have them
involved in the process of the event.
More and more are those events, when a client
has such faith in us, that they do give us free
As the quote above suggests, it is never the
amount of things one offers to another, but always
about the intention, quality, style and the spice.

the various leagues we

Tips & strategies for fun and successful tennis!
Playing Against Two Back
In doubles if you are playing
against two players that stay
at the baseline, most likely
they are back because of your
aggressive nature or because
they are not comfortable at
the net. When playing against
the two back scenario, here are a few strategies to
think about:
1. Hit the ball short - Hitting the ball short forces the player(s)
to come to the net and puts them in an awkward area of the
court. After hitting the ball short to bring them in, hit a lob. This
is a very effective strategy, and will keep them off balance.
2. Play the ball deep down the middle, if hitting the ball short
doesn’t work. Doing so will put your opponents in more of a
defensive posture because the ball is deep and they will have
to decide who will return the ball and will struggle to keep the
ball away from the net player on your side.
3. Take control of the net – Putting your team in a
commanding position at the net will put you in optimum position
to finish the point. The open part of the opponents’ court is
short, so while at the net, hit the ball short or hit angle volleys
when presented with the opportunity to do so.
B Divison Mixed Doubles winners
Mark and Denise Goldman
Congratulations to Lewis Messulam and his
team for a great season in the Grand Slam
League this year. They made it to the finals but
unfortunately lost in close hard fought matches.
Also, I would also like to congratulate Leon Tracy
for competing in the playoffs of both leagues. A
special thanks to Larry Kobren, Warren
Rabinowitz, Lewis Messulam, Fred Drozdoff and
Leon Tracy for their relentless work of being
captains for our other teams. We look forward
to next year for another successful league result
from all the teams.

Golf Fitness to Help
Avoid Back Pain
exercises, developed by the Titleist Performance
Institute, to help fix your physical limitations.
One of the most common
ailments suffered by
golfers is low back pain.
Here are a few ideas that may help prevent or
alleviate your low back pain.
There are a number of
potential causes for this
including poor posture,
faulty swing mechanics, illfitting equipment, muscle imbalances in the
body, or just plain over-use. Golf is a physically
demanding sport and the truth is that most
people who golf will likely feel soreness at times

huge attendance at our monthly luncheon

demonstrations, to our enormously popular
Professor Robert Watson, to the Jacqueline

finale. Surely there was something for
everyone this year!
